On Tuesday, the State Capitol Joint Management Commission approved Governor Christie's $300 million plan to renovate the NJ Statehouse.

While most agree that the building -- which is the second-oldest capitol in the country and hasn't had a major renovation since the '50s -- needs a significant upgrade, there has been lots of disagreement about the process.

The project was greenlighted without legislative approval and an opportunity for public scrutiny. State Sen. Ray Lesniak has been a major critic of this renovation plan. He skyped with Chasing News on Wednesday to voice his displeasure.
